I think you're grossly misrepresenting what a Registered Dietitian is. They study the science of how our bodies utilize food & how it contributes to our overall health. They don't only focus on caloric intake & certain nutrients. They DO focus on the whole & use their very rigid schooling to help their clients attain health. You state in your responses you are self-taught by research. I google things too, that doesn't make me fit to counsel others & misrepresent RD's, an important profession.
Evita Ochel
Adam, thank you for your input about dietitians. Please understand that my self-taught comments come from going beyond the traditional school system, as I have a science degree in the biology and biochemistry of human health & nutrition + HN cert. I am sorry I am not able to cover fully the scope of dietitians in such a short lesson, which is meant as an overview, but rest assured that I know what they study & the limitations of schooling systems which do not steer people towards optimal health.

Love the info, Thank you. Do you have any certification, and if so where? I'm very interested in furthering my education
Evita Ochel
You are most welcome Diane! Great to hear you enjoyed. Do you mean where I got my certification or whether I offer any official programs where people can get certified? The answer to the latter is no. The answer to the first is that I share my education background on my website (www.evitaochel.com), but most of what I teach was acquired via personal research, not any specific schooling. My education backgrounds all helped to build upon each other. What to pursue will depend on your location, etc
